Leaders-for-a-Day is dedicated to better prepare young people for the labour market by engaging them in a comprehensive real life work experience that will:
- Demonstrate the connection between education and successful careers.
- Introduce young people to the requirements of the labour market and help them to build the skills they need to succeed in a 21st century workplace.
- Encourage mentoring between young people and experienced professionals; help them expand their network and position them better to enter the labour market.
- Inspire a shared responsibility across all sectors for the development of a skilled, adaptable, and successful workforce that will contribute to a dynamic and competitive economy.
